Hello and Welcome!

Hello to everybody who has found this blog. I have been making cards (mainly) for a couple of years now and have become pretty addicted to inking and stamping and generally getting creative. I blame a lot of that on the Graphicus Guild, so if you're not already a member click on the logo and check it out!

The photo below is of an anniversary card that I made recently for my sister and brother-in-law. It's an 8x8 gatefold card using one of the papers from the latest Artylicious CDs (Essence of Nature) and stamps from Elusive Images and Lavinia Stamps. The inside, which I haven't shown here, was inked all over with Adirondack Aqua and then a random pattern of leaves was stamped, again using the Adirondack Aqua pad. I then used the computer to create a message panel with the wording in a chocolate brown and the panel filled with a light aqua.


  1. Hi Liz

    This is a really pretty card.

    Welcome to the world of blogging. You should realise that it becomes quite addictive, just like stamping and cardmaking.

    It was Lesley Ebdon (on GG) who encouraged me after I had emailed her for some advice - she has been great, and this space does give you an outlet for showcasing stuff and having a bit of fun joining in challenges, etc.

    Good luck.

  2. Hi Liz and welcome to blog land. The card you have made is beautiful. The paper is a lovely colour and the birds work so well with it. Looking fforward to future posts.
